We did it! We all survived National Novel Writing Month: 2017 Edition! Whether or not we reached (or surpassed) 50K words for our novel, the most important thing that came out of this month is that we wrote more words than we probably have all year.
I join NaNoWriMo year after year because of the writing community—there’s nothing like it!
I love how writers from everywhere unite for a common, personal writing goal: To finally write that novel. We receive genuine support virtually from writers across the country and globe. And we finally get to meet hundreds of writers within our community during one of the coldest months of the year.
Sadly, there’s always a dark side to even the best of intentions.
Week 2 of National Novel Writing Month is in the books! I’ve typed out a lot of words, reinstated some neglected (yet proven) writing habits back into my life and haven’t hated every word I’ve cranked out into my story.
